Festival Line-Up Update: OnBlackheath, Nozstock, Positivus and more

By | Published on Wednesday 16 April 2014


So, London has another festival on its books, the John Lewis-sponsored OnBlackheath, which takes place (no shit) on Blackheath Common on 13-14. Built for lovers of food as much as music, it’ll feature the likes of Massive Attack, Frank Turner, Gilles Peterson, Stealing Sheep, Charlie Boyer And The Voyeurs, The Wytches and BadBadNotGood, and celeb chefs and a farmer’s market.

Also, Bromyard-based pop/rock bash Nozstock’s HQ has announced that Fun Lovin Criminals, Charli XCX and Eddy Temple Morris will join prior confirmations like Roots Manuva, Craig Charles and James Zabiela at its 2014 iteration.

Stay fixed to the following lists to catch the full drift of updates just made to those bills, plus bills at Camden Rocks, The London FolkFest, and perhaps Latvia’s biggest festival, the Kraftwerk, Bastille, Ellie Goulding and Elbow-featuring Positivus.
